Mein Auto: soon to be X1
I know nobody wants the stigma of owning a bottom-feeder/ low rent BMW. But I'll admit- that is precisely what drew us to the BMW X1. I hadn't even considered BMW's before because I assumed it's out of our price range. We were actually looking at cars like the Mazda CX-5 and the Jetta Sportwagen, when we came across the X1. (We already have a Subaru Outback- otherwise we would definitely be cross-shopping that one too) The X1 is rated at 28mpg by the EPA, has a roomy and useable interior, and is way faster than the econo-class CUV's and wagons that we were looking at. It fits our needs, and we were drawn in by the X1's $31k starting price. I'm not going to apologize for getting a great deal and liking it. So here we are- a Valencia Orange s28i M-Sport on order!
